Publisher's Summary

Authentic and gripping, Eureka debuts with a poignant novel about one woman's climb to success and those ready to pull her right back down.

Elana Dolvan lived through a treacherous childhood in Chicago and wants to be more than another "hood life" statistic, so she sets her sights on the top. She works her way up the steep ladder of white-collar success, achieving one of the most impressive careers in her family's history. She becomes a powerful attorney, but the lure of the streets is still strong. She is also known in the underworld as Dutchtress, one of the most ruthless female bosses in the US. Trapped between the two worlds, her double identity soon creates problems, and all hell breaks loose. The unpredicted fallout leaves nothing but murder and mayhem in its path.

Dutchtress refuses to allow her enemies to take another breath of fresh air after they take her most precious possession. She will stop at nothing to get back what's hers. With her right-hand man, Flex, by her side, they perform a bloody symphony, reaching all the way from the Windy City to Jamaica. Family or not, no one's spilled blood is off limits.

THIS NARRATOR WAS HORRIBLE

THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN A GOOD BOOK IF THE NARRATOR WAS A DIFFERENT PERSON. IT WAS OVER EXAGERATED AND ALL OVER THE PLACE. THE STORY LINE WAS OKAY BUT IT TOOK LONG TO UNDERSTAND WHERE THE STORY WAS GOING AND HARD TO FOLLOW. WILL BE RETURNING THIS BOOK

CULTURE VULTURES!

As a Jamaican, this book was an Insulting piece of crap! That nasty imitation to my native speech was OFFENSIVE beyond OFFENSIVE! This book is VILE and it has plagerized parts from the movie 'Mark for death's ( another insult from the past). Black Americans, should understand that their imitation of other black cultures is just as OFFENSIVE as the offense the find in whites imitating black culture.....Yow dis rass yah insulting BAD! and de duchtress gyal should a dead....killing new borns and such is disgusting!!!!! Eureka go SYM 🙄

Okay, but unrealistic story

The worst part of the narration was the disgusting and insulting half-attempt at a Jamaican accent. That was absolutely horrible!

It was good but rushed at the end

I loved the story line at times I got a lil confused and had to backtrack but I loved the way the story was put together and how everyone had a piece to the puzzle. Overall the book was good. Just wanted a little more out of the ending !! Looking for other books !!!! Thanks for the good read!

I am English, but this was an Insult to all Jamaicans

I recommend that if you do not have Someone who speaks the language or accent for your characters in the book, then just have a book to read NOT AUDIBLE, do not insult other people’s cultures. If you had a French character in the book, would that French man speak Spanish ?
Hell No ...................so why would you think it is OK to have someone who did not even remotely sound close to any Jamaican, I was appalled.
I liked the story and Mishi was good when she stuck to her own accent. but I will never listen to one of your books again. It was truly disrespectful, see how you Americans would like it if someone botched up your accents on audible.

What a hell read

This book was horrible. The fake Jamaican accent was nerve racking. The best part of this book was the very end. The part that said this conclude the end of blah blah blah.

Graphic violence, rape and sexual content too much

I struggled in the beginning, found myself wanting to trash this story, but I so glad I didn't. once the storyline got going it never stopped.
